Outstanding Employment Lawyer
It is my pleasure to recommend Sean Higgins as an outstanding employer lawyer. I engaged Sean in after being let go from my position with an internationally recognized law firm. Due to some major events in my personal life, the timing of my termination could not have been worse. I was terrified that losing my job would cast a dark cloud over what was supposed to be one of the happiest periods of my life. From my initial consultation, Sean quickly restored my confidence and gave me hope for the future. Drawing upon his experience handling similar negotiations and his deep understanding of state and federal employment law, he carefully set my expectations by methodically laying out my legal options. Moreover, once engaged, Sean was extremely responsive and always displayed the highest levels of professionalism and candor. Ultimately, Sean negotiated an outcome that exceeded my expectations and gave me the peace of mind to focus on the things most important in my life. I strongly recommend his services.

Excellent lawyer, highly recommended
I highly recommend Sean Higgins for anyone facing the daunting challenges of a workplace discrimination case or other work related cases. From our first meeting, Sean demonstrated not only a profound understanding of the law but also a genuine empathy for my situation. Throughout the process, he was exceptionally communicative, explaining each step of the legal process in a way that was easy to understand. He helped me manage my expectations of the process and of the outcome as well since it was my first experience with workplace discrimination or any legal dispute . Sean's strategic approach to my case was masterful, combining rigorous attention to detail with a compelling presentation of the facts and a logical, well balanced approach. Thanks to his outstanding professionalism and dedication, we achieved a favorable outcome. Sean is not just a remarkable attorney but also a true advocate for justice. If you're seeking legal representation that comes with both expertise and integrity, look no further.

Simply the Best
-I can’t express how grateful I am that Sean Higgins took me on as a client. In addition to being extremely effective at practicing law, Sean was attentive, empathetic, timely, and fantastic at breaking down the legalities of the situation I was facing. He always answered my questions quickly, and in great detail, regardless of how large or small. He actively listened to my concerns and was adept at being able to help me understand the legal situation with which I was involved. He had an uncanny ability to explain complex situations in a very digestible manner. Sean is a legal practitioner who is solution-oriented and constantly focused on how we can best achieve the desired resolution. He is always curious and never critical of the situation at hand. While I hope I never need another Lawyer, Sean would be the first person I go to or recommend to a friend if I ever find myself or a loved one in a similar situation.

Awesome Attorney!!!
We are glad as a growing company, that we came to know Sean William Higgins who willingly accepted our case of Worker Compensation issue. He actively communicated via emails and phone calls guiding us at every stage for furnishing the required documents in support of the case. We were thrilled at the outstanding success that he arrived at dealing with WC board. It is definitely great news for us that he was able to justify our disposition very clearly, precisely and accurately.

A lawyer I can trust
Sean Higgins is very competent and professional. He has a quality that may be rare among attorneys: he patiently explained every step of the legal process to make sure that, as a client, I knew how to document our case. Plus, he does not forget the human angle involved and his fees are very reasonable
